Test Your Game Skills At GAMEmason

George Mason University’s Student Involvement and the Center for the Arts, in collaboration with Mason’s Computer Game Design Department, GMU Esports, and GMU Anime & Gaming Society, team up once again for GAMEmason, an engaging all-day gaming convention March 20 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the Fairfax campus of George Mason University. GAMEmason 2020 is sponsored in part by Microsoft, The Cave in Fairfax, and MAGFest.

GAMEmason features educational panels, appearances, and meet-in-greets with major power players in the gaming community, including David Hayter, Canadian-American voice actor for Solid Snake in the hugely popular Metal Gear Solid video game franchise and John Romero, award-winning game development icon whose work spans more than 130 games.

Participants can discover the ins-and-outs of game design and new technologies such as to augment and virtual reality with expert Mason professors, relive childhood fun with arcade games and peruse gaming industry merchandise in the Concert Hall lobby.

New this year, play in the Microsoft-sponsored gaming room for a variety of activities, as well as a tabletop gaming space with games provided by MAGFest. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with outside gaming affiliates, speak with Mason Game Design professors, and enjoy commemorative swag.
